Is routinely stonewalled after his initial burst on contact and isn’t a guy who is going to move anyone as an in-line guy at the next level. However, displays good athleticism on the move.
Is able to quickly pivot out of his stance and pull, reaching and breaking down well on targets through the hole/at the second level. But again, isn’t real powerful on contact, gets upright and isn’t a guy who locks on and can drive defenders backward even in space. Displays the body control to hit the moving target and initially create a slight jolt, but is easily stood up and disengaged from through the play.
Displays good initial athleticism off the snap. Has the ability to quickly get out of his stance and is asked to get a lot of depth off the ball, helping clean up any mess from the inside. Showcases good range when asked to redirect and covers a lot of ground. However, consistently gets too upright off the snap and isn’t real heavy handed when asked to engage.
Struggled to mirror and hold up one-on-one when asked to block a man off his shoulder. Routinely oversets, lacks a pop on contact and allows defenders to work across his face and get up the field. Struggles to lock out and seal completely and eventually is worked over and overwhelmed through the play.
Impression: Is a good athlete with some natural range to his game. However, he plays upright, lacks power/bend in the run game and plays too high in pass protection. Possesses some upside because of his athletic ability, but isn’t much more than a later round/free agent type guy in my view."
Heading into the 2009 campaign Kowalski made the move to center where he started all 12 games. The Rockets offense began to flourish behind the experienced offensive line and Kowalski made a smooth transition to center. In 2010 the Toledo offensive line was expected to lead the team to the postseason and they did just that, again under Kowalski's leadership. The Rockets will face off against Florida International in the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl, there first bowl appearance since 2005, after finishing with an impressive 7-1 conference record.
Kowalski is in a relatively large group of centers who are projected to go in the middle rounds. His experience and ability to move to guard if necessary is a plus, but he will need to have some solid workouts heading into the draft if he wants to be one of the first three or four centers taken in the draft."
